I suggest that people make threads as well for their bugs/suggestions. And everyone do their part in reporting duplicate topics.

It would make it easier for the development team to manage this stuff.

This thread is a roundup of the feedback and bug reports posted in this forum, and updated once every weekday. Please read the quote above, and post a link to your thread in this thread for it to be included (if it hasn't already).

Offers the toggleable zoom for Android too (Transformer Prime). But no deal breaker for me.

But something I'd consider a bug:
The login screen's text field for account managment offers auto completion, adding parts of my account name (old account with email address as name) to auto completion. That's not really helpful.

Also:
A "You have to be logged in to access Steam Community." (or similar message) is shown in a window with buttons in the title bar (one being for some kind of search feature?) but they're not responsive.

Transformer Prime with Android 4.0.3

Your buttons on the Android version seems a bit washed out. This is most likely because you are not using drawable-hdpi but simply using the drawable folder.

Also, this might be related, but the gradient background on the login activity does not have dithering activated.

How does one get an invite to the beta? I have the app installed on my iPhone, but I need an invite? I understand there may be resource limitations on the server side, but any official word from Valve would be much welcomed. Even if it's "we're sorry, we're currently only inviting x number of people, in random order." or "We're only inviting people we personally like."

On Android , if u Logout and then back Login , everytime you receive this Email
We've received a request to access your Steam account from a new computer
or web browser.
To complete this process, enter the following special access code into the
authorization dialog before trying to log in again:

and

If you close the app, you are still Online in Steam even when you unchecked the option "Remain connected to Steam in Background". So you can only Logout if u click Logout but then you have everytime to type the random code when you Login.

I don't want to open the new thread because this was probably already suggested a few times, or it's completely impossible.

Create a platform or set of tools where developers can create and publish the controller for their own game. You buy the game on steam and than you get a controller in the app. Something like this where the whole thing would work through Steam app via wifi.

I'm sure there are a lot of indie games that could find a clever way to use this option.

I have it on Android, and my sister has it on her iPod, and it's MOSTLY functional. A few quirks here and there, but altogether pleasing for me. The chat-problem on my sister's device is a bit of a bother, though. Slightly more detail below:


Android: If I use the menu key that's on the bottom of my screen too many times, instead of the built in menu-key at the top left, I get some serious lag. Backing out until the first time I did it seems to fix the problem.

iOS: Cannot scroll to bottom of menu, and it won't receive messages in-app when logged in to her account on her computer.


Also, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the store worked and I was able to make a purchase!

Oh, by the way, the Android device is the HTC Thunderbolt, and the iOS device is an iPod Touch 4G.

1st of all Thanks Valve for ding this app its cool to chat and see our friends and buy games like this.

Here are a few problems I personally ran into.

Ok I think the upper refresh and menu buttons are a bit to small and I have problems telling if i hit them since there is no indication.

Same with friends list. I already miss-selected 3 times when trying to select a friend.

Also the refresh button dosnt seem to do anything. (My friend was showing up online on PC but on mobile he still was apparantly ingame even after several refreshes.

Did anyone else have this?

My first impressions from running Steam Mobile on a Nexus S are very positive. It's polished and stable. I have no big issues with the UI to be honest. It's intuitive and it looks nice. If anything buttons and stuff should be a little bit bigger. Chatting works great and the profile pages look good. Overall I am really happy with it.

The only thing I'd like to add to the first post is this:
- Show my wallet balance somewhere. It's possible to buy something with the funds from my wallet but it would be easier if I know how much I can spend.






Also, Half-life 3 will be a mobile game. Calling it now.

Feature request
I have a little feature request which is quick to implement. Add some kind of indication to tell whether the person is using steam mobile or steam desktop. You could find inspiration by looking at the facebook chat.

Bugs
In settings, the notification ringtone radiobutton menu is set to the wrong ringtone when using the default one.
Reproduce:
Notice ringtone is set to "steam ringtone", click on "notification ringtone" notice another ringtone is selected as default when the menu opens, instead of the "Default ringtone".

In settings, the menu which pops up when choosing another setting, can appear twice when quickly double tapping.
Reproduce:
Quickly dobbletap an notification ringtone, notice two menus popup, instead of one.

My phone is an android 2.2.2

I found a bug, on iOS and Android. If you go to store and choose any game with discount, the button (add to cart) is on wrong place.

PS: i am not sure if it is only in german store.

A minor thing that I find need change in the Android version. I don't like to have a cluttered notification bar/area. It would be nice to be able to remove the steam icon that tells you that you are connected to Steam. If there is a way to do that already, ignore this. If not, the addition of the setting would be nice.

Things I have noticed:

iOS 5.0.1 iPad 2
- Runs as an iPod/iPhone app - doesn't utilize the display's resolution. I assume this is an easy fix, but it could very well be intentional to not have a native iPad app.

Android 2.3.3 LG P999 (G2X)
- The main scrolling menu (Store, News, Community entries) seems to stutter slightly when scrolling.

Universal
- Editing my profile to include the word "I'll" changes the entry to "I\'ll" and the profile reflects this on Steam and in browser.

Thanks very much to the folks collating these issues. This thread (and others like the one from Mangr0v3) is super helpful to the engineers working on the Mobile apps. I believe some of these issues are already addressed. For example, I believe these have been fixed:

Allow selection of a news post to read it; can see news post title, but unable to read content
Selecting any news feed only shows the most recent post.

Is the intention of the original post to mark them as fixed (once confirmed)? If folks consider the above issues not fixed, we could use a better description of the issues and/or a screenshot.

This one is a transient effect that I would not really consider a bug.

The menu separation border does not disappear when 'hovering' over a menu selection and overlaps the selection background gradient


If that were in our internal bug tracker, it would get marked DNF, which is short for "Do Not Fix."

Timestamps are inserted into the chat log between messages that are more than 15 minutes apart, which is the same threshold used by the iPhone SMS/iMessage app. Is this not sufficient or do I not understand the issue you're raising?

Some of us like to know if a message was received this very minute or ten minutes ago. It can make a difference. I'd argue that a chat would be faster-paced than text messages in many cases, but it's honestly not a big deal.

Potential Android bug:

I get massive battery drain on my HTC Inspire 4G. Left myself signed in while sending messages on the PC client.
Got to echo this:

I did my own "Test," normally I have my phone unplugged for 9 hours, Battery ends up around 75% left. I don't touch the phone as I am asleep.

Last Night/Today, Another 9 hours unplugged, Steam App running, has brought my battery down to 25%.

I should point out no Steam Chat messages where sent or received in this time period.

Mikel_S
01-28-2012, 09:44 AM
Big nutter, what phone are you on?

I just did the same test, same circumstances, but I'm on a Thunderbolt. There was a chat open, but nothing was received. Unplugged for 8 hours, and right now the battery is at 81%. I have custom launchers, 3 games that keep themselves as running processes at all times, and all the stock Verizon crap I can't be bothered to get rid of, that runs no matter what. And an app killer that kills all unused apps every 30 minutes, set not to kill apps running in background-mode, or however I describe that.

Also, if you are home, the problem might be that you left it on 4G, and if you have a low signal, the scheduled pings to Steam might have been causing a drain. I have a well-saturated wifi signal throughout my house, so I always keep it on that when I'm home.


Anyway, that issue aside. Somebody said something about Chat time stamps... I sent a message last night before I went to bed, I just opened it up again, and there is no stamp. I see stamps up above between some lines, but it seems that it won't show up automatically at the end of a chat string if nobody responds, which I think would be the most important use.

I did it on a Motorola DEXT/CLIQ rooted to Run Android 2.1, I think (been 18 months since I did it), has Motorola crap on it. No App Killer apps. Doesn't have 4G, but for some obscure reason it occasionally looses all ability to communicate at 6am GMT(Local time). That could have happen during my test. It has access to Wifi. I usually place my phone in same place anyway. The Phone is nearly 2 years old, and I am looking for a reason to replace it.

It could be that other URLs aren't supported yet or the app has a particular interest in not letting me sign up :P

One more message regarding the current time-stamp implementation.

Currently it works like this.
I receive a message while I'm not looking or near my phone, it buzzes a little, and sits there. An hour later, when I pick up my phone and look at it, I see the message. When I send a response, a time-stamp shows up above it, showing the time I sent it, which is RIGHT THEN.

Here's a slightly cleaner example.
New message received in existing chat @ 1:42 PM.
App opened @ 3:05 PM.
Response message sent @ 3:06 PM.
Time stamp appears above response message, showing 3:06 PM.

Kind of useless, because that just shows me the time I responded, not WHEN the last message was. I'd rather it show the time stamp in one of the following 2 ways:
(1) After a few (5-15) minutes of inactivity, insert the time-stamp for the last message was sent/received automatically.
(2) A live running ticker somewhere on the screen (in a static bar above the top of the chat feed, or right above the text input field) showing the time of the last message.

Having an issue recieving messages on the iOS app ( using iOS5 ) regarding messaging friends....

If my PC account is logged in - (set to away) - and I message them on through the iOS app, their replies seem to be going to my PC account - tested it a few times back and fourth and 1 message of 4 came through the App? Not sure if this is to do with the PC steam account status? (away vs online?) Or if the friends list messages are competing for App vs Home account ?? or possibly the friends steam app not refreshing + getting messages ?? As it is they all seem to be getting sent through to my home steam?

Ideally messages sent from people to me would go to both steam account + mobile app ???

also agree with others that some sorting options for contacts would be great ( show online / offline + maybe custom groups )

This maybe more of a general Steam Chat suggestion but I think due to having a mobile application now it becomes more important.

Is there any possibility of adding offline messaging and saved message history? Both are prevalent in most other chat clients and would be a very welcome feature to complement with the mobile app.

Offline chat would be a much better way of managing messages when users get disconnected while on the mobile app than having the 1 hour period where the user is marked as away when connection is lost which then can be reduced to 15 mins. This would reduce the confusion for someone messaging another person in thinking that the person they are messaging may not be using their phone and their status as away rather than their status being marked as away due to being disconnected.

While Permanent Saved chat history would be useful for checking messages have been received and what not.

Oh and another suggestion I just noticed while using the app while signed in on the PC at the same time. Possibly adding a way to disable notifications of chat messages on the mobile when they have been received and seen on the PC. Gtalk has a similar feature where if you receive the message while signed in on the PC it doesnt create a notification on the mobile. But once your not using the PC it goes back to normal and notifications begin again.

When I have EDGE internet connection (and not WiFi) and run Steam App, it takes VERY long time to update friends list. Maybe about 2-3 minutes. I rly don't know why it works in that way, because I can load Steam Store page in Safari few times faster.

Groups are shown with no discernible order. Please alphabetise this, as the Steam desktop client does
Groups are shown as they are in Steam by default, sorted by creation date. I wouldn't call this a bug more than request the option to sort as a feature.

It's having to parse each person because it's chat, not a cached version like the web page so it is showing real time data. That is mainly your Internet speeds problem however valve might make it a little better with tweaking.

Not likely as your shopping cart is only a cookie. If you open the store in a web browser or multiple web browsers, you'll notice nothing is kept cart wise compared to the steam application. Asking for this is pretty much asking for it to be incorporated into Steam for Windows, Mac, and web pages.

I'm liking what we have so far. just a few suggestions, so that full integration could be possible between the desktop (Steam Client), and mobile versions. at least one the ideas I had seems to be on the list, so I'll skip that and move on with the other ones (sorry for not reading previous posts in case that list is not updated yet):

- Groups cannot be edited on the mobile app if you are the owner/administrator. I think it could add more functionality for people that need to be mobile (that's why I have the mobile app), basically so that I can chat. That would mean making announcements, ranking the PoW (not prisoner of war, funny guy), events, and of course, access to the chat room (just like chatting with your friends).

speaking of which, is there a mobile beta steam group? if not, I think it would be nice to have one, since I'd like to join it as well. unless, someone has to invite me, yes?

- Settings. hm...this is apparently not released in the beta. sounds kinda scary if you have no personal control when something gets b0rk3d. I for one would be interested in 'toying' with this.

- Ringtones, is there a mute or 'none' option? I keep my phone on stealth, and it is only allowed to vibrate. I like that vibration can be enabled/disabled depending on the circumstances, but if you prefer to only use vibration, or total silence, it might not be necessary to have a ringtone.

- the user's in game screenshots work, albeit this is a WIP. I just noticed that as I explored the little gallery, I could zoom in and out the screen. none of this is currently clickable, however. I would love to see that available, as well as the ability to share them like it is possible to do through the web version and the client. This is also possible to do in a game's profile/store page, which helps so that I wouldn't have to struggle trying to read the tiny text.

- on browsing games (through shopping, search, reviewing the wishlist), there is a screenshot button. however, it seems to do nothing. sometimes the "box" image of the game takes a while to load, which is probably why people might be reporting there is a blank screen. anyway, if the screenshot feature functions, I think it would be also nice that includes videos (might be tricky though, depending on native support of each device).

- I have tested the chat feature both ways. I like that it has an automatic "mobile" status next to my "Online" status. would have been nice if both the web/client and mobile versions allowed additionally for custom status messages, like many IM clients have done for years. Same thing for profile pages, if you want to post a status message like on social networking sites. I believe, people have suggested this before, but it's related to the mobile client because I thought this would be a nice feature at this time for integrating between these systems, like the chat feature we have now.

- last, but not least, orientation. IDK about other devices, especially for tablets, but I would like to see the option of vertical display, instead of the horizontal I'm seeing right now. if someone has a long list of stuff, it's easier to see most of the list without having to scroll so much.

this is all I can think of right now. I'm not expecting changes overnight, but I'd be happy if it was added to the list for consideration.

EDIT: there's apparently a suggestion thread. kind of redundant, isn't it?

This may be what causes the issue with getting to the settings button on iOS: when you landscape in the app, it causes the interface to bug and will not let you scroll down all the way until you close the app and stop it from running in the background. Re-opening the app will allow you to go to settings.

Hope this helps anyone else who has had the issue on iOS 4.0 and higher.

Has anybody monitored how much data Steam app uses? I sent 2 messages to my friends and left the app running in the background because I was also trying to figure out how much battery it drains. After several hours of the phone idling, I checked my data usage (Verizon data app), my data had jumped 40mb+. I am sure I hadn't used the phone for anything else and no other apps was running. I will do more investigation and find out how much data the Steam App really uses. For those people who have unlimited data, 40mb for a few hours on Steam is nothing, but for those who are on a limited data plan, every mb counts.

My only real issue with the (Android) app right now is that the menu buttons don't give you any indication that you've pressed them. Not a great thing to have on a touch screen.

Also, this might just be me, but shouldn't the cycling pictures on the Featured page link to the game they're advertising?

On that note, would an imageless store be useful for anyone else? I try to minimize the amount of internet I use with my phone, but I usually have plenty to spare, so it's not a really big problem.

One of the things I'd most like to see is a way for notifications to only be sent to the app when the PC account is Away, Snooze or Offline. I leave Steam running all the time as I'm the only one that uses my computer, but it gets a little redundant when my phone is buzzing/vibrating when I'm actually at the PC. The simple answer I suppose is to change the settings each time, but I would think there's an easier way.

Just make it so when the actual Steam account gets set to Away/Snooze/Offline (even if it's automatic away functionality), only then do messages get sent to the phone, but alas, it's still a great app.

Can't see this mentioned yet. On iOS version, the green "Add to cart" box to the right of the price is shifted onto the next line when there is a discount listed. This partially overlaps the text "About this game". It doesn't always do this (eg. Glowfish is fine, Insane 2 is not).

I don't know if this is only a problem of my own but when I close the app in my iPhone using the main button (not really closing it, just sending to "tray"), I get offline of the chat. If it's not only a problem of my own, it would be cool to leave the app in 2nd plan and receive notifications like SMS when someone talks to you in the chat.

Hi, knowing im running a little ahead; on android ICS 4.0.1 trying to scroll in any of the 'subpages' emptys the scroll list (while it still scrolls) for example friends list works fine, but if i open a profile its shown for a second, then the page gets emptyd when i start scrolling

Also, i noticed that when im online on pc and mobile, and use mobile for chat, that whatever msg anybody sends me ends up on both platforms, then when i reply from mobile its not shown on pc, while if i reply from pc its also shown on mobile.

Device; HTC Sensation
OS; Android ICS 4.0.1 (ill try with 4.0.3 tonight)

Keep up the work though, looks nice and usefull (srsly though, look at adding minigames to big titles, so if u buy 'game X', you get a mobile minigame about it)

First of all, its great to finally see a Steam Client for iOS - been wanting this for ages :) Some requests and bugs below, hopefully not repeating too much that others have already posted.

Feature requests:

There should be a way of seeing my achievements, either with a 'My Activity' page or by going to each game
Add ability to slide menu back across rather than have to hit button as using with left hand only you have to reach up to top right corner
Add ability to minimise groups of friends
Include ability to terminate mobile session from desktop client and vice versa (requiring password confirmation)
Add ability to set a custom Steam news feed as home page (i.e. for particular games, news provider, or genre)
Some way to sign out
Show my games on my profile, not just recently played
For each game page you visit, include option to see my achievements for that specific title
Make the Metacritic rating a link not an image
If possible, stagger downloading of screenshots rather than all at once
Make it possible to zoom on screenshots


Bug reports (iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1):

Once app has been rotated or app closed/reopened, the settings option on the menu is off screen and can't drag up enough to show it
If both desktop and mobile are logged in only some of the conversation seems to make it to/from the mobile client
I don't appear to be getting any conversation notifications if desktop client is connected (definitely enabled)
Occasionally a menu item that I previously selected within the client remains blue as if I had just pressed it


It would also be awesome if you could view trailers from the client, but realise this is a significant undertaking.

Hello all. I am beta participant as many of you.

I am probably quite few who have both android and iOS platform at my disposal. I own a cheaper line of android phones in my use, huawei U8800 or commerciqlly known as ideos x5. I also own a iPod tough 4th generation. I have used the chat mainly, replacing the need to keep my PC open when I am not doing stuff at PC. I have few minor things mostly, but let me outline and format the problems bit clearly:

Mumtiplatform push. I think in iOS backgrounded steam would push to notification center, much like skype iOS does. My problem resides in two things: because I first used my android device, the messages get broadcasted to it, and only it. There is also NO REAL WAY TO EXIT AND DISCONNECT - even after I take from menu to exit steam and close the app, and after that try on my iPod, messages get pushed to my android, opening steam that I though I had quite clearly closed. Do not tell me I have to KILL it.

Other is minor, but major. Links - make them clickable. If not on iOS (though skype on iOS does this so it is not a problem to wads at apple) at least give android "clickable" parsed links. On android it is easier as youtube links could be directed to youtube app, normal browser stuff to your browser, and steamcommunity and steam store links could open inside the steam app itself!

As for now, steam mobile has been what I already wanted 3 years ago. Rest of my problems are because of my handset that has problem upkeeping wifi.

Thanks for valve to making my small dream true.

P.S. if you find blatant, bad typos on this post, sorry. I typed whole post on android handset, I tried to keep track mostly through the thing but cannot say it is flawless attention.

On the first boot of the app we had to check our email and enter a code because our accounts are protected by Steam Guard. After, once the app is shut down and re opened we are once again prompted to check our email as if its the first time we've used this device to log in with. I'm not sure if this is a iPhone problem or the app problem but I really don't want to disable Steam Guard just to use the app quickly and efficiently.

Hey, I registered on the Steam forums just to post some feedback.

I have been using Steam mobile beta for Android (both my LG G2X and Samsung Epic 4G Touch), and the concept so far is great. Of course, I have to ask when these two simple things are going to be added:

Entering group chats. I would love to be able to talk to friends in a group chat while I'm on the go.
Setting your status to away or busy and etc.


Then there's also not so simple things that would make good additions:

Voice chat capabilities, personal and group IM. This would be an amazing feature, if it is pulled off correctly. A headset would be recommended for this feature, of course, but not required. You should be able to enter any chat, start voice chat, and have it pop-up as an ongoing notification. From there, you can leave that screen, and go to another app, while VCing. Another great addition to this feature would be Push To Talk. Simply hold your camera key, or other defined key, and speak. However, I am unaware of any incapabilities of the Android system that would make PTT unlikely, or even voice chatting unlikely.


Of course, I'm part of the percentage of people who use Steam to socialize more than anything. I do not use any other IM services, besides Skype, because Steam's IM services are very simple. Seeing these features on mobile would be amazing.

I saw that not being able to scroll down on the iOS version was on the bugs list, not sure if someone already said this, but I am pretty sure this is caused by turning the phone sideways.

I can say that the last two would not be possible on iOS. The sandboxing on the system prevents the first, and the second would be killed by Apple, as they don't allow competing stores. (And on the exceedingly off chance that they did allow a competing store, they would at least require it to use the in-app purchases API, and that would mean Valve/Steam would have to give a 30% cut to Apple.)

I guess these ideas would be more for android then, seeing as its the more open platform an would actually allow these very nice features.

Actually, you have an option. It's called "Ongoing Service" and you can find it under the settings menu. If you deactivate it, the steam icon should disappear from the notification bar.

Valve has released iOS and Android versions of its Steam platform, letting you chat with Steam friends on the go, see what games they're playing, view screenshots of Steam games, and putting us all at great risk of financial ruin shop for and purchase games from the comfort of your mobile device.
The release of Steam Mobile comes as a "beta" release, meaning the app is not immediately open to everyone. After installing and logging in, I was informed that my account was not flagged for beta access and would have to wait to be admitted to the service. All part of the plan, apparently, as Valve says that "to express interest in the beta," Steam members need to download Steam Mobile and log in.

Just want to suggest something, dont know if it has already been suggested but on the iPad version can you make the screen bigge because currently the iPad version has the iPod/Touch screen size which is a pain to type with. I know theres a x2 function but it makes the screen really blury. Also just wanted to mention a little glitch (I think), on the iTunes store the app is listed under iPhone only when it is actually for iPad etc might want to fix this.

Problems:
- Screenshot button at the game pages not work;
- Search function not work (crash sometimes - and chat disconnect);
- Chat disconnect when the application is placed in the background.
- Apparently all the screens are web pages made to the application. The is no data plan (and patience) to resist.
The application must load the text and images, is the way it is easier to open the page of Steam. Navigation is painful.

Suggestions:
- The search option should be included in the app menu as a input field;
- A list to choose the filters (price, genre, publisher, date, etc);
- Button to share the games (or offers) at the social networks (Google+, facebook, twitter, etc) and e-mail;
- Sync news as Google Reader;
- Integrate de shopping cart of the web page, desktop client and mobile app;
- Allow access at the foruns through at app;

The only problem I have with the app is that it is impossible to close it. You stay online for an hour after you exit the app and it auto starts if someone messages you during this hour.

I understand why this feature is there, but we really need a way to close this thing. If I press "exit" the app should send this to the steam servers, and wait until the steam servers confirms the offline status before the app fully closes.


It would also be nice to be able to change the language manually, The translation to Swedish feels very awkward and I prefer English.


Oh and I really love the app, keep up the good work! :)

Are you using the "Exit Application" option in the menu? It works for me on my Android; I don't receive any message to my phone when I close it this way. And only get messages when I switch out of it.

Had an odd bug earlier. I'm running an iPhone 3GS, and I decided to mess with the network settings. If you switch Data Roaming or Cellular Roaming on or off while the app is running, the app will not continue to send messages. The temporary fix is to make sure both are enabled, and then restart your phone. I was logged in simultaneously on my PC and on my iPhone, so I could see messages coming from my phone.

Due to the popularity of Sky rim and TF2, I'm sure that a lot of people spend time using the workshop to check out mods. Would it be possible to not only browse the workshop from the app,' but to also set subscribe flags to items you want to add? Please excuse me if someone has already asked for this (I didn't read through all 16 pages but didn't see it mentioned in the first 19 or so)

Having issued buying in the mobile app since for some weird reason my phone shows I have an US ip, but I'm not in the US, therefore steam just gives me errors when I try to purchase.

I can buy using the a browser since there I can just add the country code for the store in the URL (store.steampowered.com/?cc=pa), but the mobile app doesn't have that option, contacted steam support and they just told me they don't offer support for the mobile app and linked me to this forum.

I think that the mobile steam app is going pretty good. It is still in the beta stages, so there should be room for improvement. Everything overall though, is awesome.

But the problem that I always have, is the lag when using the Chat Feature. It seems to overcome the whole application. When trying to use other applications, many of my buddies, have reported it popping up when trying to use their Android Email Application. I think that when you exit out the application, it logs out, and won't open. Insted of keeping it running in the background.

Greetings,

I created a thread yesterday asking for assistance as the app would no longer work on my iPhone. Well, I found the reason and thought that it should be noted in case others are running into the same error.

When attempting to log in I would receive a message stating that the proxy that I am using isn't compatible, even though I wasn't using a proxy nor using wifi. After a bit of research comparing my wife's phone and mine, I believe I found the culprit.

iOS 5.0.1 (9A406) was my firmware while hers was (iOS 5.0.1 (9A405). After downgrading my firmware to 9A405 I am now able to use the Steam app with no issues.

I think there should be improved syncing with the notifications between different mobile devices and the desktop program.

For example: You get a new message from a friend, and you get notifications on any devices running steam. Great. Now let's say you read that message on your desktop (to the point that the taskbar icon stops blinking, however that's defined) and/or reply to the message. That should get synced with the mobile devices now so that they are no longer showing notifications for new messages, since you already read/replied to that message on another device.

Other than that, great app so far! Does exactly what I expected it to do without any bugs or problems.

Cheers,
David
